Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Charlie Parker (Jerry related?)

Thank you so much for posting with us. A big aficionado of Bird, I dug right into your class on him first. (the class begins @ the 5:38 mark) and thoroughly enjoyed it. As Parker states in one of the clips you show, music speaks louder than words, but you make it easy to grasp some basic elements of improvisation that I believe any of us here on the forum with the patience and interest could easily transfer towards increased appreciation of how Jerry played – indeed I couldn’t help but think of him during parts of the lecture.

Music theory gets some play here among us from time to time – this link can add a lot towards understanding the conversation. I also got to wondering about parallels between Parker and Garcia, as it strikes me that there are many, but perhaps that is best left for another time. Thanks again sir – looking forward to the Hornsby class. I don’t suppose you would ever consider a Jerry Garcia segment ?!! (just kidding of course)

The Greatest Jazz Concert Ever - Dizzy Gillespie; trumpet, Bud Powell; piano, Charles Mingus; bass, Max Roach; drums, and Charlie Chan; alto sax. Due to contractual reasons, Parker was credited as Charlie Chan which was coincidentally his wifes name (Chan). Now link that with shaking the hand of Charlie Chan, U.S. Blues. Bird and Garcia, both 20th century geniuses. This record is a must have, "bird with his peculiar plastic axe." SALT PEANUTS!!!
